Second food sober Easter- 2013
This Easter, I've got almost 14 months experience. It's easier to see how jelly beans, peeps, and chocolate candies ruled my day. And left me feeling terrible, hooked, and overweight.
Norma linked to an article from Oxygen magazine . Sugar was such an addiction for me. It's such a relief to be food sober. Good for my mind. Good for my body. It is not my fault that sugar effects me this way. It is my responsibility to deal with it.
Walk #1 is done. Crock pot has a great beef balsamic roast and the house smells great. Visiting with friends without "using" sugar is the best. I know I'll be zooming around tonight feeling awesome instead of puffed out, wanting more of the sugar drug, and feeling sad, mad, and stuck. The good feeling keeps me on track and honoring my body and mind.
Hope you'll be joining me in Food Sobriety, today , and every day. Safe travels. Onward. Karen P.
What works for me
1. Abstaining from Easter Candy
2. Brewing a good cup of coffee after dinner
3. Keeping any left over candy from others away from sight, and out of the house
4. Walking in the morning of a holiday.
5. Walking after dinner, walking with friend or family member- or walking myself if others are occupied.
What didn't work
1. Buying and eating Easter Candy
2. Eating dessert on top of Easter Candy. (Holy Sugar load!)
3. Eating left over Easter Candy
4. Not taking time for myself
5. Not walking if others were not going to join me.
